Pouch Cubed - Little Square Bags

I've been working part-time at a local Husqvarna-Viking dealer and in between customers I have time to work on projects.  Lately I've been having fun making these cute little bags. The pattern is by Leah Williams of Sew Spoiled and is called Pouch Cubed.

The first one, using the Batik fabric, that I did I just used a soft interfacing and it's pretty flimsy.

Then I found this awesome "Where the Wild Things Are" print and used a craft type interfacing and it had more body but is a little more"crumpley".

And finally, I enlarged the pattern on the copier and used an old test stitch out for an embroidery design and made this one.  I think some people I know will be getting these as gifts.

What I didn't show is the lining.  Half the fun is choosing a contrasting lining and zipper.  These are fun to make and go together in about an hour.  The pattern is available on Etsy I believe.
